themselves takers exactly. let's listen to jim webb defend them. >> governor romney and i are right about the same age, young guys. like millions in the our generation, we came to adulthood facing the harsh realities of the vietnam war. 2.7 million in our age group went to vietnam. those young marines that i led so many years ago have grown older now. they've lived lives of courage, both in combat and after their return where many of them were derided by their own peers for having served. that was a long time ago. they are not bitter. they know what they did, but in receiving veteran's benefits, they are not takers. they are givers in the ultimate sense of the word. >> joy, the whole thing, people should look it up on youtube, it's the most powerful speech. i raerd it today. it's riveting. >> when i heard this last night i thought to myself, this is devastating for mitt romney. i mean, these two gentlemen are of the same age. you understand, chris, the most seminal decision that had to be made by young men of the vietnam era was whether to answer that call or whether to try to find a way

? >> for president -- or, rather, for governor romney i'd ask, if you're going to repeal and replace obama care, what are you going to replace it with? >> well said. your thoughts? who's it for -- who's the question for? >> question for both candidates. i'm an archaeology student, i care about prehistory preservation, i want to know what candidates say about funding for the department of interior and park services, specifically. >> you were the pioneers, the mascot. all right. what side are you on? >> obama. obama! >> you have a question for obama, you got all your answers. >> i have a question for obama and for romney. how are you going to manage the student debt crisis and make college and grad school affordable for all students? >> what's the student loan? >> grad students have lost the ability to have unsubsidized -- thank you -- unsubsidized loan so i'm paying a whole lot more out of pocket -- >> do you know what i paid 3%. question for who? >> question for both candidates, about gun control. after this incident in aurora, we would like to know how we'll have more gun control. >> gabby gifford.

enough. let's go to the tough question for governor romney. you supported the vietnam war. you were a protester, a student at stanford, for the war. i never heard of such a person. you were out there with placards yelling, we have to go to vietnam. we sent 2 million young men to war in vietnam. if it was worth their lives, why wasn't it worth yours or even your time? >> well, i think the premise of your question is unfair. >> well, a lot of people want the unfair question asked and answered. >> it wasn't worth my -- >> do you believe it's pacifist to not fight yourself -- >> well, there are a whole lot of reasons and decisions that were made during the time, during that war, that my family and i talked about, that i had my concerns about. but that is not what this election is about. this election is not relitigating the past of why i did or didn't go. >> the reason it's relevant, that you're going to be sending more men and women to get killed in some cases or take serious life-long wounds, and at the same time, when you had supported a war, another time you were for a war, you made
